Greenways Plan comment deadline extended

Pulbic Park RecrationIn our last issue of  Walk Bike News, we announced the Tampa-Hillsborough Greenways and Trails Plan Update and asked for your ideas via a short survey. This project is ongoing, so you still have time to make suggestions.

Sponsored by the MPO in partnership with Hillsborough County, City of Tampa, and others, the study has been updated with many good ideas and suggestions from the GO Hillsborough public meeting participants. The City/County Greenways & Trails Committee members also gave their thoughts, hosting a workshop in May.

Next steps include field reviews of the feasibility of constructing these trail segments. Some wish-list trail connections, to be evaluated include:

  • Extending the Town ‘N Country Greenway east to serve the Leto/ Egypt Lake area
  • Completing the South Coast Greenway and extending it northward to the Selmon Greenway
  • Exploring routes in Brandon
  • Connecting the Downtown Riverwalk and the Courtney Campbell Trail with a greenway
